Vertigo Can be Side Effect of Medicine

By Christian Goodman

Everything around me was moving even the floor. But I'm the one who was experiencing it and ended up on the floor being sick on my stomach, while trying to make things still.

I received this description from a client not too long ago. She was not familiar with vertigo and had not experienced it prior to about 6 months earlier. It however, was becoming rather common.

She was diagnosed with vertigo. Vertigo is roughly described as a feeling in which the person or objects are in motion. In simple terms it creates a feeling similar to dizziness.

Inner ear disorders are the reason for vertigo. It's generally not a disease but a symptom.

BPPV or benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is one rather common type of peripheral disorder. Dizziness, stomach sickness, vomiting, profuse sweating and impaired hearing are some of the symptoms. It also trends to grow in fast pace.

Mnires syndrome while not as common is another peripheral disorder. Some of the same symptoms are present, but Meniere's often starts with a "full" feeling in the ears leading to deafness or near deafness.

These symptoms will increase and decrease over the course of hours or days. In many cases, a person must lie down for a number of hours in order to gain some relief.

The client who was suffering from vertigo did pursue additional treatment. Unfortunately, the other medications resulted in additional negative side effects, all without alleviating the vertigo.

During another doctor's appointment while the nurse was checking her blood pressure, she again expressed her problems with vertigo. This time, the nurse mentioned other patients who had complained of dizziness or vertigo after they began taking the same hypertension medication my client was prescribed. Her vertigo began not long after she started on the high blood pressure medicine.

This was almost bewildering. How was it that the same doctor, who was treating her for vertigo, had prescribed the very drug that carried that particular side effect?

various antibiotics and anticonvulsants also do cause temporary or permanent dizziness or vertigo. Other drugs that treat high blood pressure might cause short term and long term vertigo

While it is tempting to direct frustration, especially in this case toward the prescribing doctor, remember that the most common and traditional treatment for serious problems such as hypertension tend to end with taking medication.

This particular client was determined to treat both conditions with alternate methods to decrease or eliminate the additional negative side effects. My High Blood Pressure Program successfully lowered her blood pressure to healthy levels. She also completely eliminated her vertigo through the all natural Dizziness and Vertigo Program. Both of these programs can help you too.
